    Is it possible to turn the difficulty down without replaying the whole level? Heroic was fine up until this bit.
     

    edit: I’ve given up. Can’t be bothered with it. It will just have to stay unfinished. 

    The same bit took me ages and was an incredibly frustrating way to end a game I'd really loved until that point.

    The grappling hook is the single most fun thing in the entire game and elevated that first third/half of it to a real sandbox joy.

     

    Wanting to nerf it? Absolute madness.

    This is an interesting one for me. I don't have much time to game these days and I'm really enjoying halo because i am finding it very relaxing going around competing bits whilst not having to think that much (playing on heroic). Having read the discussion on the grapple hook, it's immediately apparent to me that the major reason I'm not having to think is that i beat almost every encounter very easily because of the (almost infinite) 'ammo' of the shock grapple ability. I'm having fun but after a few hours the combat is feeling very repetative due to the strength of this ability/mechanic.

     

    I don't mind it too much as i get a maximum of an hour to play the game a few times a week however from an objective perspective, I can see it detracts from the quality of each encounter as I'm able to clear almost everything with a battle rifle and the grapple ability therefore not experiencing the variety weapons and encounters in a more unique way.

     

    Of course I could force myself to not use the grapple, not use the BR and not use the map for better exploration but those would be of my own design rather than the game (time constraints mean I choose not to though i do accept it's to the detriment of the sandbox on offer). 

  3. I needed a palate cleanser... Rinsed this a little while ago and uninstalled it but decided to download it again to have a quick go. I'm completely addicted again! Seems like they've updated the game quite a lot. Personally prefer this to enter the gungeon (love that too though)

    There was a 4gb update last night and its fucked the game for me. 

     

    Some of my mods just don't work anymore and the handful of games I played with others were a laggy mess. 

     

    Even when I reran a couple expiditions there was lag and I also got annihilated within minutes on a exhibition tier than I coasted through a day earlier. Going to give it a rest for a bit. 

    Funny you say that, i did think my mods didn't seem to be proccing and i was getting one shot by practically everything but i didn't think it could be the game. 

     

    Bit of a shame as I've loved it and wanted to get into the grind of expeditions but today has really put me off. 

     

    I think the game is well worth paying good money for but the mess of the whole launch would certainly mean i would have returned it by now had i bought it

    They didn't. You can still a Legendary every time you complete and reset all 10 hunts, they just removed the exploit that gave you a Legendary after every single hunt was turned in.

    Are the expeditions/lucky drops the only other way to get legendaries? Also, I've finished the campaign on world tier 12,any reason i should level it to 15 (and if so how?) or should i just focus on expeditions?

    I'm enjoying this as an occasional thing to play. Hit my first difficulty spike getting to the second city in an area swamped with countless enemies and a captain (where all the anomaly stuff is going on). Great satisfaction when I finally broke through it and got to the next checkpoint.

     

    Couldn't imagine paying full price for this though and would have felt a little ripped off if I had. It's just very average and generic, the sort of game you would pick up at sub £20 and be fine with. Feels very antiquated as well, would have been fine released 10 years ago amongst games like Gears etc.

    It's funny because i think I'm enjoying it even more because it's very linear, generic and old school. I don't have to worry about checking every path etc, just enjoy the shooting, check out my new gear and move on to the next arena. These days it takes 10 hours just to be able to access a games main systems. This is pretty much great from the off imo

    Annoying. I got to the

      Hide contents

    Chrysaloid

     

    boss at Tier 8 and he's ridiculously easy but was taking about nine hours to kill with my weapons. More accurately, about ten minutes to get to phase 2 just running around holding down the button. Fair enough, a little slow, but whatever. Then he brings in those flying fucking bugs right near the end which can melt me instantly. Die a few times, almost weeping with boredom at the length of time it's taking to whittle down his health bar, then get killed again. Fourth try the cooldown I need just stops cooling down. Get melted on literally the last fucking wasp thing in the second cycle with no chance to activate my bubble. 

     

    Drop to Tier 1 because I don't want to spend fifteen minutes plinking away only to get melted by three goddamn bees again, and then I get my first legendary - the Thunderbird drops at level 20 instead of 25 or whatever.

     

    Ha ha, game! Well played, you absolute asshole.

    Is world tier progression linked to anything in particular? I'm at the same boss as your but only on tier 6 and I've done a fair few (not all but most) side missions

    Yeah just booted me out middle of A game 

    Yeah me too, having spent about 20 mins trying to get in. I thought the benefit of this is that it isn't a live game yet i can't bloody play it due to server issues. 

     

    The 5 mins i got of the mission I'm on were amazing though
